In doubtful breast whilst motherly pity
With furious famine standeth at debate,
Saith th'Hebrew mother, 'O child unhappy,
Return thy blood where thou hadst milk of late.
Yield me those limbs that I made unto thee
And enter there where thou wert generate.
For of one body against all nature
To another must I make sepulture.'
